Getting this video really cleared up some things that I was doing wrong and now it's soooo much fun to do @ Clubs and school dances whenever the song comes on!
ALSO, I am going on a cruise for spring break and was looking for some awesome moves that I could do on the boat and the dance that Fatima choreographs for this video is so awesome.
Fatima is a sinewy, commanding dancer with a serious six-pack and moves to spare. With the help of some talented backup dancers, she uses a range of techniques and, best of all, makes fantastic sound effects. Fatima is playful with the other dancers and funks it up with steps such as the Raj and the Shake.
Her teaching is fast paced, but she repeats each move several times, speeding it up, counting it out, and then putting it all to the music.
I hope Fatima makes more videos but this time, I would really like to learn routines to ENTIRE songs or something I could put to several songs.
That's the only real reason I didn't give it 5 stars - because the Aaliyah routine is 3 separate parts of the video and the BSB routine is only from the end of the video.
Fatima breaks everything down very well so that anyone can learn the dance routines to some of the hottest videos around.
I would recommend this video to ANY person who loves to dance!
The backdrop is a sleek concrete, glass, and steel studio (for a while, Fatima dances on top of a giant silver pillar). If you liked the footage of Fatima in the All Access Backstreet Boys video, you'll love her as the center of attention here. --Emily Bedard I've been DYING to find a video that is a good cardio workout as well as fun, hip dance routines and this is it!
I have truly missed learning dance routines from when I was a cheerleader in high school (I'm 28 now) so when I read about Fatima and the video in Women's Sports and Fitness magazine, I hopped on to the next day and ordered this video. I can come home from a long, hard day at work and have no energy to go for a run or do a workout tape but I pop in Go Fatima and before I know it, an hour has passed and I'm dripping with sweat!
You learn some great steps that I'm sure you could incorporate into some hot moves in the clubs, but if you're looking for a workout video, this isn't it!
i have always tried to learn the routines to music videos, but it's hard! fatima breaks down every step of two of her best routines from aaliyah and the bsb!
Fatima even choreographed a hot new routine that you can use in the clubs!
